Lily's Magical Tea Party
2011 is Lily's first year at school (prep), so for her birthday we did the unthinkable - we invited her entire class to our home for her 5th birthday! Now, we decided only 3 weeks out from her birthday that we'd do this, hence the complete silence from me on my usual forums and here on the blog - I've been working like a demon to put this 'Fairy tea party' themed do together (with a little help from the amazing Mr J of course ;) ) The party was yesterday, and while we are still in clean-up mode, it all went really well! Lily had a wonderful time with her classmates and family (around half of her class came - that's a lot of 5 and 6 year olds!) and we had loads of positive feedback from parents and kids alike :) My favourite part of the day was definitely the pinata - I almost split my sides from laughing so hard, it was just adorable! I over-catered of course (lets face it, it beats the hell out of under-catering), so the fridge is full of party goodies :P We have another birthday coming up in a few weeks time (Jackson is turning 2! ), but I do believe we'll keep that one a nice sedate family do! I'm thinking a dinosaur theme....any cool ideas appreciated! Pictures definitely speak louder than words, so here's some pics of Princess Lily's magical tea party.
